New to Chapel Sessions but with musical pedigrees making us wonder how we managed to get both of them together!

Ray Cooper is a former member of the highly acclaimed Oysterband who you may have seen playing to sellout crowds in Festivals in the UK. Now based in Sweden, we’ve been trying to tie him down to a Chapel Session Gig for ages.

Not content with one legend we have also got Steve Skaith on the bill doing a solo spot away from his megaband (Latin Quarter).

Ray has moved between rock, punk, pop and world music, and working as a singer, bass guitar player and cellist, he finally hooked up with Oysterband in 1988 and began a long exploration into his own roots. 
Moving to Sweden in 2000, Cooper continued playing with Oysterband, eventually touring in 27 countries and recording 19 albums. In 2012 they won 3 awards from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for best group, best album and best traditional track and were dubbed by fROOTS magazine as one of the 3 ‘Icons Of Folk’. Despite their success, Cooper took the decision to leave the band and go solo in February 2013 and has since been touring Europe extensively.

Steve Skaith, the singer and co-writer of the band Latin Quarter, best known in the UK for the 80’s hit single “Radio Africa”. The band was once described as being able to mix pop and politics delivering the perfect blend of “Dance with Stance”. We are really looking forward to some music with meaning at the Sessions.
